Plastic bottle deposit system faces obstacles

3. 10. 2019
Plastic bottle as a symbol of the plastic age as well as valuable raw material that has an unique opportunity to become absolutely circular. Plastic waste and plastic bottle deposit system were negotiated at conference in Chamber of Deputies under Agricultural Committee auspices. 

Is plastic bottle deposit system discussed in social media relevant in the Czech Republic? Shall we implement the model of other EU states or not? If so, what will be the fate of remaining 75 % of other plastic waste that is not mentioned? 

>> Purum recycles PET plastic waste to valued PET flakes, which are used in manufacturing industry. PET flakes are processed as spare car parts, electronic components or 3D printer strings. The remaining 75 % of other plastic waste we utilize as alternative fuel.
